"the ant-eater trying to play its tail?"

A kind of jazzy restlessness of styles, wrapped in a cloak of anonymous pseudo-mystery: Hassellian smears, tin-can rattle, martial clump, droney gesture, unhinged, echoey oscillations, & even an occasional cheery, riffy groove...

Oni Ayhun > OAR001-A [sample] > OAR001-B [sample] (both from OAR001, self-released) > OAR002 [sample] (from OAR002, self-released) > OAR003 samples [LMYE hack] (from OAR003, self-released)

Thanks to mnml ssgs for the tip.

"OA’s music is (about) drama. OA makes records that combines disturbed dance music on the border to insanity with free dreamy drone stories without a beat. Like a surrealistic musical with a narrative based on associations, abstractions and confusions, the music is a journey through different settings and scenes. Each record features a handmade engraving, unique for each release.

OAR001-A, is an attempt to tame cheesy fusion-jazz into a new free fusion between sharp electronics and organic textures, elastic funk and rubber set in an odd shady environment. Is it a big animal playing its nose, a beast, or is it the myth about the ant-eater trying to play its tail?

OAR001-B, is it the bees humming about their life by the concrete factory? Or is it about the people living under acid rain singin their story? Or is it just diary notes from OA’s everyday life..?"

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
